THERE are few places across this vast planet that Beth and Bob Malcolm, managing directors of Travel Masters haven't been.
In more than 30 years of planning and escorting small group tours to the most exotic and unique destinations on offer, Beth and Bob have virtually done it all ... except for one thing and they're about to change that.
90 degrees North. The North Pole.
The only spot on earth where every direction is south.
To reach the North Pole used to be the sort of thing that only the most courageous of explorers were able to achieve, but no longer.
In June 2014, Beth and Bob Malcolm will be escorting a small, highly discerning group of Australians on the journey of a lifetime.
Cruise with them aboard the largest nuclear-powered icebreaker in the world - 50 Years of Victory - as she cruises from Murmansk, Russia, to the very top of the world!
This magnificent ship is specially equipped and capable of crushing through the toughest of pack ice that the Arctic Ocean can toss up.
Carrying just 128 guests, the 50 Years of Victory even has its own helicopter for aerial sightseeing as well as a fleet of Zodiac adventure craft for exploration.
Throw in an onboard gym, two saunas, a small swimming pool and a library and you'll enjoy the comforts of home in this most desolate of landscapes.
Upon reaching 90 degrees North, you'll celebrate with a champagne toast, helicopter sightseeing and Bob and Beth have even included the cost of a hot air balloon ride above this fabled location.
The tour doesn't end there ... at the North Pole that is.
You'll cruise back to Murmansk via Franz Josef Land, the most northerly archipelago in Eurasia, lying completely within the Arctic Circle.
Weather permitting; the Zodiacs will transport you beneath towering cliffs to explore remote seabird rookeries. Walrus and polar bear are numerous on these islands so keep your eyes open.
The tour departs on June 30, 2014, and is hosted personally by Beth and Bob Malcolm.
Prices start from $23,335pp and all cabins have exterior views and private facilities to ensure both maximum experience and maximum comfort.
Availability is limited so call us today to request your copy of the full colour brochure or speak to one of Beth and Bob's senior consultants.
